Knowing what your good at in life is only half the battle, but luckily for Fairfield, Calif. native Sage the Gemini, he has clearly won the war when it comes to finding success in the music industry,
He began rhyming at 8 years old and was recording himself by the time he was a teenager. This is a one-man band, word to Swizz Beatz. Sage is a skilled songwriter and producer, which means he owes much of his success on the Billboard charts to himself. While on his grind, his talent and aspirations soon caught the eye of fellow Bay Area MC IamSu! and together, along with the HBK Gang — a collective of rappers, directors and producers established by Su known as the Heartbreak Gang — they’ve earned the status of hometown heroes.
However, even with chart-topping singles like “Red Nose” and “Gas Pedal,” which he produced himself, Sage is still a rookie eager for playing time and dedicated to putting in the work to become a member of the starting lineup. He did just that with his 2014 debut album, Remember Me, which featured appearances from Justin Beiber, August Alsina and his HBK big brother IamSu! Not only did the project find him flexing his production chops, but it also highlighted his ability to move fluidly between the genres of pop and hip-hop.
While the album only debuted at No. 47 on the Billboard 200 chart, it was just what Sage needed to get his momentum going. A year later, he’s currently focusing on his sophomore album, Bachelor Party, led by two new singles “Guantanamera” featuring Trey Songz (a remake of the classic Sandpipers track) and the Nick Jonas-assisted dance track “Good Thing.”
